Progress!

28 07 2010

Working out in the patio yesterday, I dyed 10 of these…Sweet little onesies for sweet little babies.

Between Monday and Tuesday, I finished 8 new silk scarves and have 3 more waiting to finish.  I need some time to decide how to finish them.  I want to do more wax designs.  There is only one in this group using my new “BIG sponge” stamp. I love the BIG sponge.

Thanks Deanna! I purchase most of my supplies from http://www.dharmatrading.com
Prochemical has dyes and supplies, but they don’t carry the variety of scarves. I get almost all of my dyes and scarf blanks at Dharma. They ship out of California.

Ayla, thanks for coming by and commenting…to answer your question…there are many way to put patterns on scarves. I always use dyes because dyes don’t change the hand of the fabric..they don’t get stiff. I use stamps, rubbings, screen printing and lots of different methods to make the designs. Sometimes I dye them and then take the color out with a discharge product. It’s really a matter of trying out the techniques and experimenting.

Thanks for replying,
I really like your blog because it’s really colourful and reminds me of my teacher. I am a student and I have my own blog and find your blog quite inspirational so thank you for inspiring me.
Regards Ayla
